Decision Aids for patients with incurable metastatic colorectal and breast cancer

This project has developed decision aids for patients with incurable metastatic colorectal and breast cancer deciding whether to have active anti-cancer treatment or supportive care. Graphics are used interactively in the consultation, and patients are provided with a take-home booklet with an audiotape. Randomised controlled trials of the decision aids are currently underway.

Investigators: Martin Tattersall, Phyllis Butow, Natasha Leighl, Michael Boyer, Stephen Clarke, Alex Barratt, Jane Beith, Anne Sullivan.
